Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Editor Plugin Tick()?

I'm writing an editor plugin, and I'd like it to regularly update after a set period of time.

  1. I thought about some kind of delegate that hooks into GEditor->Tick(), couldn't work out how to do that

  2. I thought about adding some kind of actor component and using that Tick() or timer functions, but that seems clunky, over-engineered and a waste of resources

  3. I've tried to implement ISourceControlProvider and add empty functions for the abstract functions in the class - just to get access to its' Tick() - but I kept running into problems like finding a return value for a TSharedRef function that doesn't make me implement yet more empty functions for abstract functions

I just want some simple timer behavior in an editor plugin. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks for your help.
